    NYT: Glasses, once a nerdy punchline, have become a personal statement — the bigger the better.

    I figure if I have to wear them they're going to make a statement. I'm beginning quite a collection.

    When I finally admit I need bifocals, it's Dr. Van Helsings or nothing for me!icon_cool.gif

    Sorry- compared to not needing them? Still nerdy.

    @UNdercoverman, could you share the brands that are sturdy and can withstand frequent contact with perspiration? I have quite a collection. But the conservative model from Armani is still useable, meaning it hasn't developed a greenish tint on the Titanium alloy frame, unlike the others, not made with Titanium.

    I found traditional bifocals to be very clumsy to use. After I got my first pair issued by the Army (and talk about black nerd frames icon_razz.gif ) I immediately bought my own progressive no-lines.

    Not for the vanity effect, but I actually found the vision more natural, without the abrupt change from close to distant correction. Main drawback is some loss of peripheral acuity, typical with progressive lenses. But I'm not conscious of wearing a bifocal, it's like I'm back to having single vision correction for nearsightedness, as I've worn since I was age 9.

    Oh jesus christ.

    Glasses are not sexy. It's the man that's sexy. Tie underwear to his head and the next headline is, "Underwear on the head, once ridiculous, now sexy..."

    Here's a without and with. My apologies to the actor, who's delightful.

    Chances are you're not masturbating to either photo. I mean, unless he's your husband, and for that I apologize again.

    I have to agree! I've had to wear glasses for years and though I like to wear contacts (a must for the gym as I'm constantly sweating), I like to wear my glasses quite a bit. I like guys with and without glasses (no "preference") though I have to say I get weak for a guy with blue or green eyes whatever they're peering through!
